Daily Prompt: Imitation/Flattery



a teen whom others

see as bratty

she sits in the cry-room

making mommy and daddy with quite baby there cry

is her dad and mom crying because of her?

mommy feels disrespect because of her

mommy be grateful for all God gave you

pray for baby teen

sixty years doesn’t bring wisdom

why is she so angry

why does she gossip

for the young woman…older teen who has her own cross she carries

gossip, gossip, meant to hurt, meant to show how much better older

is so much better than the brat and parents let this girl be

but mommy won’t let her bully

bully you are going to be talked to and prayed for
